Cogie Domingo Appears In 'Someone To Watch Over Me' As Tom Rodriguez' Rival Over Lovi Poe

 AFTER PLAYING a small role in the movie “Whistleblower” and doing a small villain role in “Buena Familia”, the comebacking Cogie Domingo is now back as the newest addition to the cast of the hit GMA Telebabad show, “Someone to Watch Over Me”. “It’s nice to be back on GMA kasi dito naman ako nag-start noong teenager pa ako in ‘Kung Mawawala Ka Pa’ ni Direk Joel Lamangan,” he says.

In “Someone to Watch Over Me”, he plays Ian, the neighbor of Lovi Poe as Joanna and Tom Rodriguez as TJ who becomes their friend. Ian is lonely as his wife just died of cancer and Tom becomes close to him now that he’s afflicted with early onset Alzheimer’s disease. Lovi thanks him for being a good friend to Tom despite her husband’s sickness. It looks like Lovi will have a special connection with Cogie as Tom is shown asking him in the trailer: “Gusto mo ba si Joanna?”

Lovi says this is a reunion for him and Cogie. “Siya ang una kong nakapareha in ‘Bakekang’ ten years ago,” she remembers. “Nagkasama rin kami sa isang episode ng ‘Love to Love’.”

Lovi is thankful that “Someone to Watch Over Me” continues to clobber its rival show in the ratings, especially in Urban Luzon where they register high ratings according to reliable survey company, AGB Nielsen. “I think viewers enjoy watching it kasi they learn more about Alzheimer’s disease and yung mga family na may members na may ganitong sakit, nakaka-relate sila. Also, it’s also a love story about the sacrifices you make for your sick loved one kaya tumututok sila every night.”
